Dear St. Margaret Mary Parishioners,
Not long ago I spoke with a family who just recently joined our parish. Without even having to ask them why they joined, the wife said, “We are very impressed by how active the parish is and by how many ways there are to give back.” Anyone who has spent time visiting or getting involved at SMMP knows exactly what she’s talking about, especially considering the fact our parish has over 50 active ministries!
Thank you for the many ways you have supported our parish. Your generosity makes all of our ministries possible in the very first place. It is because of you that our parish can continue to worship, provide the sacraments, foster prayer, educate, evangelize, and serve those in need — in short, to love one another as God loves us. From the bottom of my heart, then, I thank you!
I am reaching out to you now because St. Margaret Mary needs your help. As the effects of the pandemic continue to disrupt parishioners’ ability to attend mass in person and give regularly, we have been struggling to meet our budget in collections. We are currently $35,496 under budget. As we approach the end of 2021, I respectfully ask you to consider making a gift today–in addition to your continued support or maybe for the very first time. With your generous commitment, St. Margaret Mary will quickly overcome these challenges and continue to be the thriving parish community that you know and love!
Below you will find a link will take you directly to our online giving page. I invite you to prayerfully consider how you might be able to support our parish during this present time and beyond. In doing so, you will play an integral role in building up your parish, your neighbor and the mission of Christ and His Church. Thank you once again for all that you do to support our parish. I know that the future is bright for St. Margaret Mary because you are a part of it!
Sincerely in Christ,
